  • Do you deliver?
    Yes, we can deliver any where nationwide! We aim to get all orders processed and delivered in 1-4 working days, however we are a small working farm and sometimes when we're busy calving cows or plucking turkeys these times might be extended. But generally we will endeavour to get your order to you as soon as we can. Please see our Delivery, Collection and Returns page for more information.
  • Why is your chicken so yellow?
    Because our chicken's spend all day and night out on pasture they consume alot of grass, weeds, bugs etc. Beta carotene is found in the chlorophyll in grass plants and this will turn animal fat/skin yellow. We want our animals to consume as much from the pasture as possible and so for us the yellower the skin the better. Beta Carotene is also a valuable source of Vitamin A, which is an added bonus!
  • How to you say "Nempnett"?"
    So many people say "Nemph""nett", which always makes us smile. The way we say it is "nemp""nett". Nempnett Thrubwell means, the grove by the well.
  • Do I need to be in when you deliver?
    It would obviously be lovely to meet you when we deliver your meat (if you're local), but it is not essential. We will package your goods in an insulated box which will keep your meat frozen for over 24hrs so we can just leave it in your safe place ready for you when you get home.
  • Can we collect from your farm?
    Yes absolulty we love welcoming customers to the farm, when you check out you can select 'farm collection', which will take place every Thursday 12-14:00, if you want to keep your meat frozen don't forget to bring your cold bags and ice packs with you.
  • Why Frozen?
    We want to farm in sync with nature, nature is seasonal and so to supply our seasonal produce year round we like to preserve it by freezing it. Don't be put off by eating frozen, we have grown up only ever eating frozen meat and honestly don't think you can notice any difference. The key thing to note with freezing meat and maintaining quality is the time it takes to freeze and the time it takes to defrost. To maintain the most quality you have to freeze the meat as quickly as possible, we achieve very fast freezing times as we have a commercial walk in freezer with very powerful fans. Then when defrosting you want to do the opposite, and defrost slowly preferably in a fridge. If you do these two things you will maintain the quality of the meat. We would argue that you will actually have better quality meat by buying a product that was produced in harmony with nature and its natural season then frozen than you would trying to buy that product fresh out of season. Take our pasture raised chicken for example, raised in the summer when the grass is growing and sweet, the weather is warm and the birds are in optimum conditions to thrive, they are then processed and frozen for year round enjoyment, the alternative is keeping chicken through the winter in the cold, wet and mud, which in our opinion wouldn't give you the same quality of product. If you have any questions on this topic please do get in touch we would love to help in any way we can.
